As noted in today's Morning Soul, Tina Turner has finally responded to the news of Ike Turner's passing, in a manner.
"Tina is aware that Ike passed away earlier today. She has not had any contact with him in 35 years. No further comment will be made."
Brrrr. Let's infer things!
- Tina Turner, like many of us, reads TMZ.
- Tina Turner, like many of us, has seen What's Love Scott to Do, Scott to With it.
- She's tired of talking about Ike, dead or alive.
- She knows who Ike Turner is, and pretty much has other stuff to occupy herself with.
Let us not assume that she's dancing in the street like most of us were when Jerry Falwell kicked it, but perhaps she knows what she's capable of saying and has too much respect for the dead, and herself, to even take the bait.
Tina, I am so glad I'm on your side.
